Quiet character study is stellar but won't appeal to kids.

This is a film about a man who doesn't speak to the world for 40 years, and once it comes time, the movie won't let him, or itself, shut up.

Highly unusual drama - with black comedy elements - which allows Duvall to showcase his refined skills.

The ponderous route of the film is livened up by the presence of the deadpan Bill Murray

The mighty Robert Duvall delivers an astounding turn as a man whose soul is burdened by the weight of regret in Get Low.

Basically, it's Hollywood slush dressed up as American Gothic.

It's Duvall's film, and he brings a gravity and poetry to Bush that sets him apart from the script's more prosaic moments.

Get Low is a handmade kind of film. Its ambitions are modest, but fully attained. I rarely use the words ''go see it'', but I hope a lot of people do.

As if it even needs to be said, Robert Duvall really is great as Felix Bush; he reveals himself so slowly and steadily, as to unveil facets of his character and personality only when he sees fit. It's a performance that deserves a better screenplay.

A performance film with soul and heart and a terrific sense of the place and time, with music to match, this is a film for the movie connoisseur

Here's a film that grabs you from the outset and keeps you intrigued throughout its story about life, love and redemption

Robert Duvall is 79 now and still hits it out of the park every time.

Duvall's work here has little in way of grand emotional declarations or Oscar-reel moments, but it is a calmly anguished, fiercely committed turn.

Robert Duvall, Sissy Spacek and Bill Murray lend their mega-watt talents to a undemanding movie. Beautifully shot but let down by an underwhelming final act.

Featuring some enthralling performances from Murray, Spacek and last but by no means least the great Duvall, you might find yourself whimpering unexpectedly in this looming yet comical adaptation of a Tennessee fable.

Sweet and gentle and occasionally makes you crave a catnap.

... as much a celebration of Duvall in the December of his years as anything else. He's mesmerizing to watch -- still able to electrify the screen and disappear into characters despite our familiarity with him

Get Low has all the modest pleasures of a well-told tale.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Get Low's one saving grace is Murray's melancholic presence, which acts as a counterpoint to the rest of the film's desperate-to-be-loved banality.
